Tierra grew up in a military family moving around to many places such as Alaska and Guam but calls Texas home. She has been an avid reader her whole life which lead her into publishing a few novels of her own. After gaining a B.A. in English Composition, she spent several years in South Korea where she taught English. Teaching at two private academies in South Korea, Tierra finished up her time in Busan and came back to Texas to rejoin the US school system.
Teaching one on one is a familiar landscape to Tierra and so she is thrilled to be apart of the Fusion team as a Humanities teacher. Her love of reading and writing is extended to her students as she cultivates their minds in the importance of literacy and literature in everyday happenings. In her daily life, Tierra is spending time with her children, watching a good sci-fi movie or working on her latest novel.
